The Neo-Grec brownstone at 378 Halsey Street in Stuy Heights has been thoroughly updated with new systems yet retains some elegant reminders of its 19th century origins. Original details include a resurfaced brownstone exterior with decorative lintels and striking door hood, original double entry doors, high stoop, decorative marble mantel and wooden shutters.
Luxurious new features include security and zoned heating and cooling controlled by smartphone via a Control4 smart system. A wet bar with a dishwasher leads out to the large garden for entertaining, and there are distressed hickory hardwood floors throughout.
It’s set up as two rental apartments over a three-bedroom, two-bath owner’s duplex.
The open kitchen in the latter has quartz counter tops, Blanco & Moen fixtures, a custom mosaic backsplash, cherry cabinetry, Jenn-Air appliances and a commercial-grade refrigerator. The marble mantel is a focal point in the living room.
There are custom closets in the parlor floor bedroom, which overlooks the private garden. The en-suite bathroom has a large soaking tub, glass curtain, dual sinks, marble counter top, and custom vanity.
There is a separate entrance for the garden level, which has a bath with Grohe fixtures and a soaking tub, two sizable bedrooms with large closets, a mud room, a play/study area and a washer/dryer.
The house’s two floor-through apartments have similar finishes. Each features a king-size main bedroom and separate home office/study/guest room.
The kitchens have quartz counters, five-burner stoves and bamboo cabinetry. There is a Bosch washer and dryer in each unit.
In addition, the top-floor apartment has two large skylights over the living area and kitchen, flooding the apartment with natural light throughout the day.
Close to the A and the C trains at Kingston-Throop and Utica, the house is close to popular eateries and bars such as Peaches, LunAtico, Saraghina, Tepache and Bed-Vyne Cocktail.
Listed by Elina Golovko of Douglas Elliman, the home is asking $2.25 million.
